Task 6.2: Software

Task Coordinator: FPMs
Executing Partners: ICSI

Tools and libraries are required to support neural network training and use on the Torrent processor. The software being developed falls into two classes:

Facilities to support general programming on the Torrent processor, including compilers, binary utilities, operating systems and application-independent libraries. This complete package is termed the ``SPERT Development Environment''.

Application-specific libraries. This includes high-performance matrix/vector functions primarily written in assembler along with C++ classes that implement the types of neural networks used by the SPRACH partners. These high level classes are part of the QuickNet package, which also contains file I/O classes, various training procedures and complete programs for use in training and recognition.
